The engineering discipline offers many career opportunities suited for different interests and talents.  Traditionally, the engineering discipline is comprised of four major branches: civil, mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineering. Each in turn is further divided into several subdisciplines.  Furthermore, engineering disciplines and subdisciplines overlap, resulting in even more specialized fields of study such as mechatronics, biological engineering, energy engineering, industrial engineering, nanoengineering, to name a few.
